Close to home ski area with world class terrain.
Can get crowded on a powder weekend. Can rain when warm storms move in.

Full review

I grew up learning to ski here. I live 1:30 minutes away and have been taking my kids here to learn how to ski. Great ski instructors. Great terrain. On mountain lodging if you want to spend the night. Good modern lifts. If it snows a significant amount the night before you head up, be parked and ready to ski by 8:00 am. As with any Cascade ski area, can get some rain from time to time. There is one apres ski option, the Snorting Elk, and it is simply awesome. Probably the most fun ski bar I've been to. The terrain park is a joke and not really needed with all the big mountain lines available. If you want to ski park, head to Stevens or The Summit. Crystal is world class without the high price.
